HARWICH — Students at a Cape Cod high school have been dismissed early after authorities received an automated bomb threat at around 9 a.m. Friday that school officials said was deemed to be "non-credible."

In a social media post, Harwich police said state police received the threat for Monomoy Regional High School in the town of Harwich.

Authorities immediately evacuated the school to a local park out of what district superintendent Dr. Scott Carpenter called "extreme caution" in a statement posted Friday morning.

State and local law enforcement, including bomb-sniffing dogs, and fire department officials are on the scene conducting a thorough sweep of the building.

The state's bomb squad has also been called to assist at the scene.

Carpenter noted that due to the time required to complete a full sweep, the students will be dismissed for the day and no one will be allowed back in the building.

Other schools in the district have also been secured as a precaution, the superintendent added.

According to police, the threat was computer generated.
